This book deserves recognition than it s gotten While it s seen as a classic in Sri Lanka I don t know that it is elsewhereThis book set mostly in Sri Lankan jungle follows the inhabitants of the village of Beddegama It is atmospheric and gripping Most of the inhabitants live hand to mouth and are heavily in debt to the headman who doles out favours according to his whims Woolf describes the social hierarchy at work within this village with administrative staff like the headman at the top of the food chain and abusing their power while folks like Silindhu one of the protagonists are considered social deviants and left scrabbling for food The bustle of the town is bewildering to these people when they do venture forth and most people consider leaving as a last resort even when starving to death There are a lot of other themes too like the importance given to the supernatural in a world where demons are almost prosaic In the midst of all their troubles the villagers cling to religion as their safeguard against these demons It s also set in the colonial times so there s a bit of social commentary there too the outsiders are seen as being somewhat compassionateThe powerlessness of the village women is explored as well most of the story revolves around Silindhu s daughters who seem to be of the Rodiya caste This book isn t one to go for if you re looking for neat resolutions or happy endings But it is an accurate I think portrayal of the impoverished village Leonard Woolf served in the Ceylon Civil Service in the early 1900s in Kandy and Jaffna before he was appointed Assistant Government Agent to Hambantota Later he married Virginia yes THE Virginia Woolf and wrote the Village in The Jungle around 1913 He clearly has a knack the prose flows beautifully and it s one of those uncomfortable reads reminds me a little of Things Fall Apart Definitely worth a read

I have a lot of complex feelings about this one and I don t think I can express them clearly at the moment It s just not common when my father recommends a book to me that he has also read in his youth And it s rare for me to experience stories from my own country that is written so well and poignantly but also from a colonizer s writing I know that I loved it and I know that I have a lot of emotions about it I will need a second read through to grasp it better though

Memorable books continue to be celebrated through the decades and even over the centuriesShakespeare s work is a case in point here In Africa although Chinua Achebe published his classic Things fall apart almost 60 years ago the novel still remains the most popular andsaluted ever in the continent Leonard Woolf alas one has to add here for the sake of many that this great writer in his own right was Virginia Woolf s husband wrote the work The village in the jungle over 100 years ago and till date many literary experts worldwide still consider the novel to be very important a work focusing on an erstwhile colonised third world country so to speak It is often posited that Mr Woolf in the work very unusually for the time dealt with the pertinent denizens of the struggling area with sympathy and somewhat criticised the powers that be who were ruling the country It is also conceded that the book has a lot of literary merit And so itdoes This work is set in the former British colony of Ceylon now Sri Lanka It focuses on a particular village its activities and essentially on one family which has Silindu as the Father His daughters Hinnihami and Punchi Menika are key characters too as is Babun the husband of Punchi There is the notorious headman of the village Babehami and Fernando the debt collector who wants Punchi as a mistress The headman with Fernando in tow manages to get Silindu and babun arrested and tried by the colonial authorities Babun is incarcerated whilst an incandescent Silindu shoots Babehami and Fernando The law has to deal with Silindu who has become adouble murdererIn this remarkable story we see how the life of the villageers is anchored on chenas As the author explains The life of the village and of every man in it depended upon the cultivation of chenas A chena is merely a piece of jungle which every ten years is cleared of trees and undergrowth and sown with grain broadcast and with vegetables The villagers owned no jungle themselves it belonged to the Crown and no one might fell a tree or clear a chena in it withouta permit from the government The stultifying even frightening impact of the jungle on the village is distinctly emphasized throughout this novel The Jungle surrounded it overhung it continually pressed in upon it It stood at the door of the houses always ready to press in upon the compounds and open spaces to break through the mud huts and to choke up the tracks and paths
